    Apart from the iPhone 14, the tech giant is expected to launch a series of other products in its first in-person event in two years.

    Tech giant Apple is set to reveal the iPhone 14 series at its ‘Far Out’ event today. This will be the company’s first in-person after two years as the last two iPhone launches were virtual during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Apple ‘Far Out’ event will be live streamed on the official Apple website and official YouTube channel at 10.30 pm IST.
    Apple sent out invites in August, sporting a galaxy formed into the Apple logo and the words ‘Far Out.’ This may have some hidden clues hinting at satellite communication, given how past Apple event names were related to the updates of the devices.
    Apart from the iPhones, Apple is expected to launch a series of other products as well. Here is what to expect from the Apple ‘Far Out’ event.
    Apple iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 "Max"
    First and foremost are a 6.1-inch iPhone 14 and a 6.7-inch iPhone 14 "Max"  which will be launched at today’s event. The larger iPhone 14 is expected to replace the mini line up bringing the big screen experience to the standard models.
    Both the devices are expected to get a slightly improved version of the existing A15 chip, an upgraded battery and an upgraded front-facing camera.
    Apple iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max
    Apple is also expected to announce the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. These models are expected to get the biggest design update, moving to a pill-shaped cut-out at the top of the display and ditching the notch.
    The Pro models are also expected to get the new A16 bionic processors, a 48-megapixel wide-angle lens (up from 12-megapixels), an improved ultra-wide angle lens with larger pixels, and maybe a new telephoto lens with a longer zoom.
    Expected price
    It is expected that the iPhone 14 series will get a price bump of up to $100. Therefore, the expected price of new iPhones in India could be Rs 1,25,525 for the iPhone 14 Pro Max while the iPhone 14 Pro could start around Rs 1,14,011. The other iPhone 14 Plus/Max may start at around Rs 85,000 and the basic iPhone 14 could be priced around Rs 77,000, as per a Financial Express report.
    Apple Watch Series 8
    Apple Watch Series 7’s successor, Apple Watch 8 series is likely to follow the same design with an upgraded screen. Apple is likely to add a new body temperature sensor to help with fertility and sleep tracking. The other features are expected to remain the same as the previous version.
    Apple Watch "Pro"
    The biggest Apple announcement apart from the iPhones could be a new high-end Apple Watch "Pro" model with a bigger screen, extra durability, and more physical controls that is aimed at extreme sports users. The watch could be a direct competitor to Garmin.
    Apple Watch SE 2
    A third Apple Watch is also rumoured to be coming at the ‘Far Out’ event. This is expected to be the second-generation Apple Watch SE. The model may feature the same design as the Watch Series 8 but sacrifice features like the body temperature sensor.
    AirPods Pro
    The AirPods Pro 2 might come with Apple's Lossless Audio Codec (ALAC) or Bluetooth 5.2 support, which uses the LC3 codec to transmit audio more efficiently. They could also sport an in-ear wing tip design similar to the one on Beats Fit Pro, along with a charging case that emits a sound when searching for it with Apple's Find My app.
    Other items
    Apple may also announce a new iPad Pro with the M2 chip as a 10th-generation entry-level iPad.
    Apple may release the final builds of the iOS 16, watchOS 9, iPadOS 16 and macOS Ventura.
    It may release a trailer for Ted Lasso season 3 and maybe even a release date for the Apple TV+ hit show.
